St. Martin's Concathedral, Bratislava, Slovakia, 2005
Although the site dates to Roman times, and was in fact the site of a Roman Church, the current St. Martin's Concathedral (formerly St. Martin's Cathedral) dates to 1221, although it was renovated in the 14th, 15th, 18th, and 19th Centuries. Originally, it was incorporated into the city walls, of which you can see the remains on the left. In the days when Bratislava (then Pressburg) was the capital of Hungary(1563-1830), it served as the coronation chapel. Maria Theresa was one of the better known monarchs crowned here.
